that that debate has really, really helped mitt romney. >> yeah, i don't think the romney campaign could have wanted to do any more with this debate than they did. if you look across the board at these numbers, wolf, romney has made gains in almost every area including somebody who's better able to improve the jobs situation. he leads -- romney leads obama by eight points on that. so whether it's on the economy, whether it's on leadership, he's now tied with the president. as far as leadership ability is concerned. so i think romney got everything out of that debate and more. >> he certainly did. and if you take a look at -- let me put the numbers back on the screen one more time. earlier this month before the debate, romney was behind the president, the president, 51%, romney, 43%. eight-point difference. now 49% for romney, 45% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minu

romney to define himself in this debate. he had not done so. he defined himself as kind of an aggressive jerk. >>shepard: mitt romney? >>guest: he was cutting off the moderator, he would not let the president speak. he defined himself that way. >> i didn't think the president was gagged. the president had an opportunity to speak. the president allowed romney himself to become an acceptable alternative after spending hundreds of millions beating up romney, 67 million saw a guy who came out was very strong and made the case for himself and against the president. the president looked very weak. >>shepard: part of the strategy was, you may not all like me, even some in the base. obviously i didn't do everything i said but there is no one else so it is my way or the highway. now, ed is suggesting there is an acceptable alternate, at least for that group in the middle. >>guest: i think the president is running on his record, particularly adds we look to foreign policy today, they are right. younger people have lived in the world where all we know is being in two wars we did not know how to get

. first, here's my take. sometimes convention wisdom is right. minutes after the debate, the pundits declared mitt romney the winner. he was. he seemed engaged, forceful, punchy. obama seemed passive, detached, and glum. but what's more significant than how romney said things is what he said. romney repeatedly insisted he was not advocating a big tax cut. in fact, he declared unequivocally that he would not cut taxes at all if they added to the deficit at all. now, as "the washington post" reporter checks out, for two years romney has been campaigning on a tax cut that would cost around $5 trillion over ten years. romney said he would eliminate deductions and cut spending to pay for it. he never offers details. he did say he would cut funding for public broadcasting which was 0.01% of federal spending in 2012. medicaid was 0.13%. romney also spoke in favor of regulations including much of the dodd/frank bill and he repeatedly held up as a model his health care plan in massachusetts which has added center the individual mandate and on which obama care is based. romney's transformation
're watching the debate wednesday night, who was that romney, hard right romney or was it massachusetts romney? >>le it, it was a little bit of both. it was a romney back in transition, i think. as one could expect, once he had won his primary, he moved back to the center, he was on a national stage as the presidential candidate. and he was trying to be a much more centrist politician than he could be when he was running for the republican primary. >> and, you know, there is something he tout multiple times as a republican governor, in the state of massachusetts, which is, as you know, at the time for him it was 87% democrat, he said he had to cross the aisle a lot to get anything done. let me play a little bit of when he was talking about that wednesday. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together, and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. when massachusetts did something quite extraordinary, elected a republican senator, to stop oba care, you pushed it
interpretation of today's number. let's get the other side, the new jobs report forced republican mitt romney to alter his attack on the president. with reaction from mitt romney, here is jim acosta. >> reporter: after a couple of days of very positive reviews for his debate performance against president obama, mitt romney is running in political news that may be blunting that momentum. the new unemployment report showing that the jobless rate has dipped below 8%, really taking away one of his key lines of attack against the president. for months, mitt romney has been saying the president failed to take the nation's unemployment rate below 8%, but at an event here in coal country in virginia, romney found a new way to crunch the numbers. here is what he had to say. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly. but it has come down nonetheless. the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: now for
. romney accused obama of failing to lead in the middle east. is going to frame his positions ahead of the next presidential debate next week. we have some analysis from our russian and correspondents in just a moment, but first tier are a few clips. >> it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use our greatest power to shape history, not lead from behind the. destiny at the mercy of events. i will put the leaders of iran on notice that the u.s. and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapon capability. i will not hesitate to impose sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. >> max hoffman was in lexington for that speech. foreign policy was never at the heart of romney's message. he has always been about the economy. what did we learn about him here? are we looking at a new conservative republican? -- neo-conservative republican? >> they avoided the name "george w. bush" similar to ronald reagan's foreign-policy. they do not want to be in his corner. at the same time, they want to take advantage of the t
the greek prime minister. next week sees the vice president presidential debate before we get two more presidential debates. one of the major issues is it that looming fiscal cliff. president obama challenged mitt romney on his plans for cutting the nation's debt. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real hit romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fell wloe on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> the president's vision is trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> president of the committee for responsible federal budget, director of the fiscal policy program, as well, and joins us now. have you heard anything -- have you heard enough of of a commitment from either side of the aisle that you thought might actually work? >> well, what we didn't hear was enough specifics. so i think the g
